MANASQUAN — Manasquan’s marriage application forms are now in full compliance with New Jersey LGBTQ laws.
Last week, the New Jersey state attorney general’s office cited 28 municipalities, including Manasquan, for non-compliance with the statute due to the omission of “unspecified or nonbinary” options for gender on marriage application forms.
The state attorney general’s office said the marriage application forms in the cited municipalities were not in compliance with the Department of Health’s rules requiring “a third gender option for nonbinary applicants and other people with undesignated or unspecified gender identities since 2019.”
The omission is also a violation of New Jersey’s law against discrimination.
When notified, Mayor Edward Donovan said this error was fixed immediately — within the next 24 hours, the borough got to work to fix the error.
